Martin

DENVER -- The NBA has hit Denver Nuggets forward Kenyon Martin with a $25,000 fine and upgraded his Game 1 foul on Dallas' Dirk Nowitzki to a flagrant foul, ESPN.com on Monday.

The league is expected to formally announce the penalty against Martin later Monday.

Less than six minutes into Sunday's Game 1, Martin was called for a technical foul after knocking Nowitzki to the ground with a bump along the baseline after Nowitzki had made his first six shots from the floor.

Nowitzki finished with 28 points and 10 rebounds but shot only 6-for-16 after the hot start. Denver pulled away in the fourth quarter for a 109-95 triumph to take a 1-0 series lead entering Tuesday night's Game 2 at the Pepsi Center.

Good ol Kenyon.

Him and Of course Rasheed are probably the only two players who will have hard fouls turned into flagrants later on so they pay that fine or Flagrants that are"part of the game" turn into fines like this.

But a point guard knocks a guys tooth out and gives him seven stitches and all that is called is a shooting foul.

that foul was pretty blatant though.

Nothing basketball about just flat shoving dude to the floor after the whistle.

At least Rondo was during an actual play, playing the game, hard contact or not. K-Mart was after the whistle. Easy fine there.

Rondo throwin Kirk could definitely be considered "after the whistle"

Kenyon Martin is in the Ron Artest category. The L going to over react to things they do, and Rondo can throw body slam Hinrich into the scorers table and begucci.

Screw after the whistle, it was away from the ball which is the problem. It wasn't part of any play because the ball was thrown up court andRondo still went back and tossed Hinrich into the stands. I don't care if it's after the whistle or away from the ball because both are @$!+++ up andshould be penalized.

Is there any place where you can send emails to tell the league how messed up they are in regards to calls?

not surprising. the NBA probably has a hit out on KMart, probably the whole team. The league certainly has its favorites.
